    When No Standard Exists, There's Grounds for Anything & Everything Under the Sun!

    Fox is running a story entitled Forecast: Sex and Marriage with Robots by 2050. It's what you would expect, robots will be programmed to provide supposed meaningful relatationships with humans. What's most interesting though is to see the SAME ARGUMENTS, GROUNDS, MARKETING, METHODOLOGY, etc., used to advance homosexuality are being used to explain why this practice too should be accepted, endorsed and normalized through government backing.

    Here are a few quotes:
    "One hundred years ago, interracial marriage and same-sex marriages were illegal in the United States. Interracial marriage has been legal now for 50 years, and same-sex marriage is legal in some parts of the states," Levy said. "There has been this trend in marriage where each partner gets to make their own choice of who they want to be with."

    "The question is not if this will happen, but when," Levy said. "I am convinced the answer is much earlier than you think."

    Methodology and Marketing)"When and where it'll happen... Levy predicts Massachusetts will be the first jurisdiction to legalize human-robot marriage. 'Massachusetts is more liberal than most other jurisdictions in the United States and has been at the forefront of same-sex marriage,'"

    "Although roboticist Ronald Arkin at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta does not think human-robot marriages will be legal anywhere by 2050, "anything's possible. And just because it's not legal doesn't mean people won't try it," he told LiveScience."

    "The main benefit of human-robot marriage could be to make people who otherwise could not get married happier, "people who find it hard to form relationships, because they are extremely shy, or have psychological problems, or are just plain ugly or have unpleasant personalities," Levy said. "

    "The possibility of sex with robots could prove a mixed bag for humanity. For instance, robot sex could provide an outlet for criminal sexual urges."

    "Keeping a robot for sex could reduce human prostitution and the problems that come with it."

    "However, "in a marriage or other relationship, one partner could be jealous or consider it infidelity if the other used a robot," Levy said. "But who knows, maybe some other relationships could welcome a robot."

    "The idea of romance between humanity and our artistic and/or mechanical creations dates back to ancient times,..."

    "Arkin noted that "if we allow robots to become a part of everyday life and bond with them, we'll have to ask questions about what's going to happen to our social fabric. How will they change humanity and civilization? I don't have any answers, but I think it's something we need to study. There's a real potential for intimacy here, ..."
